Review Notes: This Upmann looked good, so I decided to try it even at California's tax-inflated inflated price of $6.50. Unfortunately, as soon as I got it home the delicate wrapper was already starting to come apart--a major flaw that rapidly accelerated as I smoked it. The first quarter-inch or so had a pronounced, unpleasant metallic quality, but it then turned a bit spicy with mild coffee flavors coming and going. Hints of metallic taste returned every now and then throughout the smoke. Despite this flaw it was medium bodied and pleasant to the end, but the tissue-thin wrapper split and frayed and turned into a mess by the time I was into the last third. All in all, there are a lot better out there, so don't waste your time.
